Watching America

What does the rest of the world think about us?
A little while back, Josh Holland pointed me to the Watching America site, which finds and translates world press reports concerning the United States. It's an extremely useful news source that I now read daily:

“Trivelli, you and your relatives are thieves, because you stole the land of the native peoples and have taken the lives of thousands of Latin Americans.” - Daniel Ortega, Former Nicaraguan President from Nicaragua Prensa article: "Daniel Ortega Lashes Out at U.S. Ambassador Paul Trivelli"

“If our security lies in our values -- then the agenda must be more than security, and the alliance more than America.” - Tony Blair, British Prime Minister Herald Sun, Australia from article: "Blair Tells Aussies, 'America a Difficult Friend to Have'"

“The U.S., by the will of the Pentagon, has purely and simply dismissed their British; as well as their Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Italian and Turkish partners.” -- Le Figaro, France from the article "One Transatlantic Spat Closer to 'European Independence'"
